Model Answer:

I have a habit of checking up on the latest technologies from time to time in order to just keep myself informed. Of course, not that I find all types of technologies useful, as far as my needs are concerned, but when I came to know about “digital security system” about a few years ago, I thought that I could surely use that technology to protect my home someday when I buy my own home.

But, for better or worse, I didn’t really need to wait for my own home in order to use that technology as I already have it at my rented home to protect the home from theft and burglaries. In fact, I felt rather compelled to use this digital security system to protect my home about a few months ago when I found that a theft had occurred in the house of one of my neighbours.

By the way, it is an electronic device that can protect your home with the help of IP (Internet Protocol) based cameras, password protected lock system and a voice recognition system. This security system can transmit alarms, video images, and still photos anywhere you like, as long as there is an internet connection there, and thus making it ever so simple for anybody to check up on his or her home from the office, the airport, or from distant shores.  But the best thing about this technology, of course, is that it is not really that difficult to use, given the benefit it provides. All one needs to do is to practice using it a few times in order to become familiar with the technology.

Umm! this digital security system has proved out to be really useful for me because it offers a complete sense of security to me as far as my family and home are concerned.  Besides, it also gives me a great deal of mental peace when I am away from my home.
